Meghann Michalsky was commissioned by Jobel Art for Earth as one of the four choreographers in Canada to make a dance film for their project Transformations. Michalsky created Haven, a film that researches and discusses renewable resources and climate change.

The film plays between past, present and future memories and experiences.

It questions: Why are we still here? Both now in the present time, but also in the future of mankind. In the film, the characters repeat this statement as they are trapped in a compound with the inability to go outside.

This is not our last word, but our last world
There’s still hope
To keep living
To have a future
To have a real future
